I'm more of a strat player but I picked up a tele a couple of years ago that I was recently considering selling until I started spending more time with it...it has three pick-ups (Fender Noiseless) and a mini toggle switch between the volume/tone controls that allows for a wide variety of tones...beautiful crimson transparent finish, rosewood board w/ abalone dots...comfort carved back (like a strat) - a real head turner. The 7.25 necks on teles never thrilled me since I like to dig in and bend a lot which is one of the reasons I don't play it that much. Anyway, I'm now considering keeping it and trying out some different pick-ups...might also have the frets 'skunk-striped' to flatten the radius out. I believe they only made this model in '98/'99. I've looked around online just to find out what a fair selling price would be and I've had a real hard time finding any. Does anyone out there know much about this particular Tele model? As I said, I'm not a huge Tele afficionado and I don't know if I've got something really special here, but I'm definitely taking more of a liking to its versatility.
